Download: Dike – Uche Wezeali ft. Adaora
Nigerian Gospel singer and voice coach, Uche Wezeali features Adaora as he releases his debut single and video titled “Dike” produced by KC Acholem.
The song “Dike” which translates as “Warrior” was first birthed in 2017 and was ministered live in some churches in Port Harcourt city of Nigeria.
The singer went ahead to rewrite a studio version of the song for his growing audience.
According to him, the originally performed version was reformed and improved on after an encounter he had with God, in June 2020.
“On that day, God had instructed me to take a certain action and had clearly stated what he would do if I took the action. But the instruction seemed unachievable, given the prevailing pandemic.
So my response was, “In this covid-19 pandemic?” I expected the conversation to continue; God went silent.
Two days later, I was reading Job 38, and God showed up. I couldn’t stand the awe that engulfed me as he ordered me to provide answers to the questions in Job 38.
I just went down on my knees and cried to him for forgiveness. As I got up from this encounter, the first verse and bridge, which were not part of first Dike, were written. Dike is the product of my obedience to God’s instruction”.
“Details of the events that took place is a testimony for another day.” – He says
Uche Wezeali is certain that it’s not a coincidence that this song comes at such a time as this when the nations of the earth are facing upheavals. In his words, “Let this song constantly remind you that God is sovereign, and rules in the affairs of men”.
Uche Wezeali is a music minister, whose mandate is conveying God’s message through the instrumentality of music. This he has done over the years in different capacities as a bandleader, music director, voice coach, and a worship leader.
